ZEISS Lens Gears turn camera lenses into cinema lenses in a flash OBERKOCHEN, GERMANY – 18 April 2016
At the NAB 2016 trade fair in Las Vegas, the world’s largest premier show for the media and entertainment industry, ZEISS will be presenting a variety of product innovations at booth C4937 from 18 to 21 April in line with the theme Capture Cinema. Alongside the established lens lines ZEISS Compact Primes and ZEISS Compact Zooms, ZEISS will present a new accessory solution for HDSLR shooters. The ZEISS Lens Gear rings are now opening up the high-quality range of ZEISS camera lenses to filmmakers. The gear rings come in four different sizes – mini, small, medium and large – and are just perfect for achieving precise results with a follow focus system on set. The all-metal rings are compatible with all ZEISS Milvus, ZEISS Otus and ZEISS Loxia lenses. In addition to the ZEISS lens gears, the ZEISS Otus and ZEISS Milvus lenses are now available in a cine set presented in a hard transport case. All three ZEISS Loxia E-mount lenses can also be purchased in a set with a soft transport case. The ARRI/ZEISS Master Anamorphic family of lenses was also expanded to include two additional focal lengths. Visitors to the ZEISS booth can exclusively try out the ARRI/ZEISS Master Anamorphic MA28/T1.9 and the ARRI/ZEISS Master Anamorphic MA180/T2.8 for the very first time.

If you live nearby, you would have great opportunity to try their Master Anamorphic MA28/T1.9 and MA180/T2.8 lenses, which will make me (who is living too far from LA) very much jealous 🙂
